Recurring revenue decreased 11% during the first quarter at $539,890 compared to $603,579 in first quarter 2016. Services revenue increased 2% over the same time period from $2,683,395 to $2,734,646.

Gross Margin decreased to 51% in the first quarter compared to 53% for the same quarter in 2016. The decrease in gross margin is attributed to product mix shift.

Because of the increase in our investment in sales, marketing and product development, the Company-defined adjusted EBITDA was approximately $58,000 for the first quarter, compared to an EBITDA of approximately $224,000 for the same quarter in 2016.

"While Q1 was a challenging quarter financially it was due to planned activities and we are very encouraged to be finally able to put the investment in place we need to secure the long-term future of the company. We are ramping up sales and marketing activities and expect to have most of our clients migrated on to our new technologies by the end of Q2.  We are optimistic regarding future growth opportunities as discussions with potential customers in Q1 were very positive regarding our products and product direction." said Cameron Watt, President & Chief Executive Officer.

"We remain committed to the investments we have been making and look forward to seeing the results of our journey as we move through 2017", said Watt.
